You're most welcome, stunned. Thanks for visiting.

Great post and thanks for the tip on the video.

I'd never heard of it, either. I think it's waaay cool, too! I figured you'd like it, considering your interest in unusual natural phenomena. Even if you were already familiar with these, I'd guess there aren't many opportunities to see photos of them. I'm glad you like it!

You're welcome, Elvis. I'd never even heard of such a thing until you told me about it, and I think it's waaay cool!

Thanks for the tip o' the hat, Bill!

Thanks even more for publishing this interesting puzzle! Although it's a known phenomenon, I've never seen such a thing ~ what a truly marvelous world in which we live!!!

What a pity you don't present smaller puzzles 'Bill', that more of us could enjoy.

Pretty cool, eh, Returner? :-)

That's a nice thought, Pat. Alas, they CU research scientist said "…it won't last long. They either break up by melting or they freeze up harder to the bank and then break up in pieces later on." Then it will be back to plain old boring winter. :-\

Thanks, Cyndi. I don't know if it will persist long enough to entertain lots of visitors, but as long as everyone's having fun, that's the most important part.

What a treasure!

That'll help break up the monotony of a long winter in Maine. :-)

This is amazing. I saw that on Good Morning American when Ginger Gee described it and how it forms. Amazing stuff out there. This is an awesome drone picture of it. The people of Maine are hoping this will bring in lots of visitors to see it.
